NEW SINGLE “PEAK BLEAK”
UK TOUR OCTOBER 2021
Leeds art-rock outfit Mush share their new single “Peak Bleak”-the first glimpse from their new limited edition green 7” single that will be released as part of Record Store Day2021, alongside the track “Clarion Call”.
“Peak Bleak” embraces the best of Mush with a more mature ambiance. Once again the renowned energy that Mush conveys is instantly captured in this creation, the energy consumes the atmosphere with this impressive defiance. The vocal notes capture Dan Hyndman’s effervescent charisma that fights against the compelling and fierce soundscape the musicians have created. With some characteristics to early Mark Mothersbaugh, Dan standouts as the most promising wordsmith of our generation mesmerizing the audience with harmony, charm, and the ability to captivate from that first note.
Never ones to rest on their laurels, the new single “Peak Bleak” immediately follows up their hugely acclaimed second album “Lines Redacted” and sees the band further exploring the outer reaches of art-rock in truly bleak circumstances, as lead-singer Daniel Hyndman explains: “I had to buy an ebow to record this song, which left me skint for the month. The song was previously called ‘peak good’ but the title was changed to reflect the feeling engendered byhaving to spend £100.”
Mush’s new album “Lines Redacted”, which includes the BBC 6 Music playlisted single “Blunt Instruments”, received a wave of critical acclaim upon its release in February.
